KS Associates President Lynn S. Miggins Named to Top 10 Women Business Owners of Northeast Ohio

Elyria, Ohio — Lynn S. Miggins, P.E., president of KS Associates, has been named to the 2005 Top Ten Women Business Owners, an annual competition sponsored by the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Cleveland. The award recognizes career achievements of 10 women who have demonstrated excellence as a business owner; initiative and creativity; professional accomplishments and contributions; and civic and community involvement.

Miggins became co-owner of KS Associates in 1987 when she and her business partner, Mark B. Skellenger, P.E., vice president, purchased the firm. Since that time, KS Associates has made substantial progress in growing the firm’s revenue, profitability, assets, employee incentives and employment. The firm has grown from 17 employees in 1987 to 56 today.

“Growth is essential,” Miggins said. “By pulling together the right advisers, implementing the best technology systems, understanding future needs, and serving clients in only the most professional, ethical manner, a company will succeed.”

Miggins has more than 25 years of experience in all aspects of project development. Under her leadership, KS Associates has built a reputation for providing exemplary civil engineering and land surveying services on time, within budget, and with each client’s best interests in mind. The firm has grown its client base to include the nation’s largest big-box retailers, commercial and residential developers, and municipal leaders throughout Northeast Ohio. Recent major projects include providing civil engineering and surveying services for the major expansion program underway at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CHIA), and surveying services for the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) in support of the Euclid Corridor Transportation Project — termed the most important project for the City of Cleveland’s future.
